Classic PC Games

Take a step back in time and revisit your favorite DOS and Windows games. The files available in this collection consist primarily of PC demos, freeware, and shareware. These files are the original releases which will require intermediate to advanced knowledge to install and run on modern operating systems. If you would rather simply try some classic MS-DOS games inside your browser you may wish to try the online MS-DOS Software Library. New games are added to this collection on a weekly basis.

Specific news regarding major updates can be found on our website Demu.

If you are the copyright holder of a classic computer game and would like the full version of your work to appear in the archive please e-mail me at swizzle@demu.org. I'm also more than happy to answer questions and fill requests.

Compatibility Information
The majority of these games will not run correctly on modern operating systems. For DOS titles you will need to use DOSBox. You can find an easy to follow DOSBox tutorial here.

Most Windows titles will need to be run through Windows Virtual PC under the appropriate version of Windows for full functionality. Some titles may *mostly* work by simply configuring them to use a compatibility mode.

If you are running Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X, Wine will run most of the older Windows based software (and DOSBox).

The developer describes it this way: mono - part Asteroids mono - part Robotron mono - part Paint Shop Pro And I think that is as close as we are going to get... Brilliant game, really addictive and invigorating.

This game comes from the same developer that brought us "Mono". It is a 2D shooter where you have to take out all the balls that are homing in on you. The balls separate into minor balls once they get hit enough, and then into even smaller balls. Sometimes when you get rid of every single ball-piece then you get a power-up. This sounds like "Asteroids", "Mono" and so many other games, but Binary Zoo are famous for their twists of original gameplay. "Mono"...

"Echoes" is a fast-paced shoot'em up game in the tradition of "Asteroids". Here's what the developer wrote about it: Echoes is essentially Binary Zoo Studios do Asteroids and to save anyone else the trouble of making the comparison, yes, it is "a bit like Geometry Wars". The game consists of 10 levels with a new enemy introduced on each new level. They have different strengths, weaknesses and require different strategies to deal with effectively. (mini asteroid,...
